bigquotesI learned how to do whips by watching Thomas Vanderham's video parts in New World Disorder so it was cool that we were together in the finals. I was in my comfort zone all day and then on the last run I got out of my comfort zone, got real sideways and luckily it straightened out so I could ride away. - Tyler McCaul

King of massive whips Thomas Vanderham was definitely a crowd pleaser here in Whistler.

Ian Morrison
  Ian Morrison may not have had the biggest whip, but he definitely stayed the lowest...

Bernard Kerr didn t go to 180 but he was the only rider to go well past 90. He almost rode it out too.
  Bernard Kerr didn't go to 180, but he was the only rider to go well past 90. Unfortunately his feet blew off the pedals when he landed and the judges ruled that it didn't count.

Fairclough 3rd
  Brendan Fairclough, his bike was made for whipping, with all the weight in the middle.

 I can see through mountains watch me disappear I can even touch the sky Swallowing colors of the sound I hear Am I just a crazy guy You bet. Ozzy Osbourne as translated by Elliot Jackson.

As crowds kept inching in on the massive tables that make Crabapple Hits what it is it started to become a game of thread the needle for competitors forcing the unofficial master of ceremonies Sven Martin to do a bit of crowd control.

Bren-dog has slid into Cedric Gracia s shoes as the most entertaining man on the World Cup circuit. And anyone who s watched his whiptastic antics in practice on the World Cup knows it. Then there was his segment in Follow Me . The kid s got style. But look for Fairclough to take it to a new level though in Utah this October at the Red Bull Rampage.

Brook Macdonald coming off the race of his lifetime at the World Cup in Val d Isere France is here to have fun. Bulldog was sending it sideways aboard his Mondraker.

Vanderham. Again. The Kid is is all growed up now.
  Vanderham again....

Kyle strait suicide no hander
  While this was a "Whip Off" contest some riders decided to throw other tricks into the mix as well. Kyle Strait with a suicide no hander.

Andreu Lacondeguy signature... the Spaniard can Stretch Armstrong this move like none other.
  Andreu Lacondeguy's signature trick. While the Spaniard can whip sideways on a pedal bike or a moto, the superman is definitely his thing.

Off axis and upside down is not really a whip but damn--it s a crowd pleaser

 Ha yeah, best whip not brought back. How did that not top the overall? Is the idea not to land completely sideways then?

McCaul's whips are a bit weird, they seem more bar humped than most. Fariclough, Vanderham, Hart etc are all steezier in my opinion.

 it would be grate if the "(Un)Official Whip Off World" become a FMB gold-event. In my opinion a style-event would be perfect for making the style of the rider more count in the ranking

 I called that, T-Mac fist, and I said I'd like to see Cam Zink throw down. Apparently Zink threw a backflip at one point too?

 Knew T-Mac would be up there, he threw down some killer whips last year and I was gutted he wasn't in the running then.

 Don't you boys have anything better to comment about than the chicks ass? Seriously.
PB has become such a boys club, this is rediculous.
Thank you to all the men out there who don't just comment on the chicks ass!!

 Bernard Kerr owned it yesterday, whip after whip after whip, the fans on the hill's reaction said that 100 times over, shame the judges must have been sat in the wrong spot.... Mint event though, all those who crashed on the whip jump got up and looked fine.

 Is it me or Conner Fearon looking the most sideways there?? I'd say he had one of the best whips as far as going past 90degrees is concerned!
